Driving/Fishing South Long

Recommended Posts

toonfish

Coming up for the Jaycees tourn on Gull, but we are staying on South Long for couple days (lower I think) Are there roads plowed to drive on? Where are the access points to drive on, and how are the driving conditions on this lake? Any spots to watch out for? Most important how is the walleye action on this lake? Are we better off trying some other close lakes that are easy to drive on and fish out of the portables? Thanks for any input!

if you want to catch scarce dinky crappies and walleyes fish south long, otherwise opt for a different lake. If you want eyes, pelican is a good option, plus there is some roads plowed out on that lake. Or serpent over in crosby might be a good option for walleyes and big crappies, with some decent roads plowed. Or if you want to be guaranteed to catch fish go to rice lake NE side of brainerd, they run smaller, but you will catch crappies and sunnies for sure.

I never made it out ther over the weekend but a few buddies did and they said the roads were fine but they did end up getting stuck on upper south long when they tried to go off roading.

      As many of the other dog owners told me the third hunting season is when it comes together for lots of dogs. Finn did much better today and he got to watch a veteran dog again. I am excited to keep getting finn out hunting

      We got two ducks. We should had more but it was fun shooting. I need to keep my face on my stock. I had pass on many birds as another group moved in on top of us. I had 5 woodies locked up and I drew a bead and I saw the other guys faces. No shot as i would killed them or wounded them. They knew we there but did not seem to care.

      Great job guys!! I got 8 shots off the first one was good then I missed 7 in a row. Gordie got one and well river rat got zero. It was a hoot to hunt with them.

      I have a 2018 ice castle with the GS trailer frame. Are you supposed to drill holes to let water out of the tubes or do the new GS trailers have holes in them already? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Pike very active with 6-12 feet running crank baits ... also Bass !!   Been using various crank runners some off deeper weed lines 12-15 feet.    Fun trolling and having to stop because the rod was smacked hard 😃     Cret
